LGT Beacon: Risk outlook remains balanced

Equities and credit markets have remained well bid over the past month, albeit with less momentum than between March and June.

We hence maintain our neutral equity positioning and focus on active rebalancing.

In late July, near the markets' top, we had trimmed US equities and increased our gold position. More recently, we bought Japanese equities, after our counter-cyclical investment rules produced a buy signal for that market.
